A small finger joint box measuring 3” square on the outside. The box is made of 1/2” Baltic birch plywood, the lid is 1/2” red oak, all finished with wipe-on poly and a final buff using paste wax. No glue was used, just tight fitting finger joints and 1/4” dowels at the corners. The hardest part was avoiding blowout at the back of the fingers. I backed the plywood with a sacrificial piece and clamped tightly for each pass through the dado, a Freud SD508.
